but individual coaches may choose to train on another day or different location.
All of our coaches are unpaid volunteers. They do it because of their love for the game and a desire to see the kids have fun and have the ability to play a team sport. Some of them are very experienced, some of them are not, but all of them are doing their bit and their best. Parents please keep this in mind. Any form of abuse will not be tolerated and may result in the person being banned from tournaments and training.
Anyone who is interested in coaching, helping or learning to coach, or managing a team please feel free to contact the club.
There are plenty of tasks that don't require any or much football knowledge. If you are willing to help out in any way talk to your childs team coach.
The club relies on grants and sponsorship from local businesses and individuals to enable it to function. We are very lucky to have many generous people in our community. If you are interested in sponsorship or have experience of fundraising and grant applications please contact the club. The grants and sponsorship we receive help pay for team uniforms, equipment, ground rental, and Football South fees.
Home Tournament BBQ's
When the tournament is in Wanaka we run BBQ's and Home Baking stalls at Kellys Flat and Pembroke Park. As well as providing the kids (and big kids) with something nutritious and /or warm in their stomachs, the BBQ's and Home Baking are another great source of income for the club.
Each family is expected to help out on the BBQ or stall for one 1 hour slot each season. You will be notified of your turn by email and the roster will be published on the website. If you can't make the slot assigned to you it is your responsibility to arrange a swap or replacement with someone else and notify the organiser. Please help out, 1 hour per year isn't much to ask and everyone seems to enjoy it.
